After such a terrific start to the season, Martin was bound to have a rough outing, as he struggled with his control en route to allowing four walks and seven hits in last week's start.
However, control is actually the Gonzaga product's biggest strength, and paired with his cutter, a plus pitch, he is primed for a promotion sometime this season. An advanced arm, Martin could soon find himself in a Kris Medlen-type role, pitching in long relief and starting when necessary.
His stock is down for the week, but it should just be a blip on an otherwise promising radar.
